Telepractice Therapy Services

Yakos Therapy, Inc. now offers Telepractice Therapy. This type of therapy allows for the the application of telecommunications technology for the delivery of speech language pathology and audiology professional services at a distance by linking clinician to client for speech therapy sessions, assessment, intervention, and/or consultation.

Services are conducted with interactive audio and video connection (via laptop, computer, iphone, ipad, android) in real time to create an in-person experience similar to that achieved in a traditional encounter. 

A message from Maria Yakos

Per the Governor of Illinois, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois and United Health Care, Teletherapy is now a covered benefit for our patients until the social distancing order is lifted. We do recommend verifying this order as a covered benefit prior to scheduling an appointment. Once the appointment is submitted to your respective insurance company, please understand you will be responsible for payment if the claim is not a covered benefit even though the State of Illinois, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, along with United Health Care, has confirmed this is a covered benefit until the Social Distancing Order is lifted.
